Conference Tournaments: WCC

Posted on: March 6, 2009 10:14 pm

I am going to preview every single conference tournament one by one. Instead of what I initially started I am going to do them all on separate blog entries because I feel like this will give everyone a chance to discuss these conference tournaments. It will give them a home where everyone can join in and post their thoughts. Please comment.

First Round: March 6th
#5 San Diego vs. #8 Loyola-Marymount
#6 Pepperdine vs. #7 San Francisco

Quarterfinals: March 7
#5/8 vs. #4 Santa Clara
#6/7 vs. #3 Portland

Semifinals: March 8
Winner 5/8/4 vs. #1 Gonzaga
Winner 6/7/3 vs. #2 Saint Marys

Championship: March 9


Prediction: Gonzaga has dominated the WCC once again, rolling through the regular season unscathed. They can thank Saint Mary's Patty Mills for that. The Gaels have a healthy Mills back but lost so much without him that they likely need to win the WCC Tournament to get into the NCAA Tournament field. Saint Marys outplayed Gonzaga with Mills on the floor, but I still have to go with the Zags.

St. Mary's over Gonzaga.

Two bids for the WCC = one fewer crap team from a major conference.
